Exploding with lurid technicolour noise and flooding your brain with nightmarish, acid-fuelled cartoon imagery, musician/director/writer/artist/sideshow freak Rob Zombie is back with his latest exercise in restraint and understatement, The Lunar Injection Kool Aid Eclipse Conspiracy (Nuclear Blast).

One of the top tours Ghost Cult covered this year was the Return Of The Dreads tour from Rob Zombie, Korn, and In This Moment. All three bands put on a big show and none bigger than Zombie who has projected his larger than life, splatter film inspired, b-movie femme fatal tunnel vision into our brains for over 25 years now.

Rob Zombie has been known for much of his career as a creative genius and a mastermind when it comes to setting the bar for the visual spectacle of the modern rock concert. His ability to blend his far out rock, metal, and psychedelic influences, with equal parts freak show, gothic horror and sex appeal have been hallmarks since his heyday with White Zombie in the 90s. Currently on a tour of casinos and concert halls, Zombie brings his trademark show to the masses guaranteed to delight all comers. He has one of his best bands in memory in tow, with John 5 (David Lee Roth/Marilyn Manson), Piggy D (Alice Cooper/Wednesday 13) and Ginger Fish (also ex-Manson) backing him up. Not only are they all top players, each takes the stage with garish visage to match their freaky leader. He has a summer of gigs plans as the band push toward a new release this fall, and also Zombie’s crowdfunded 31 horror film on the way too. Captured here by Emma Parsons Photography at The Wolf Den at Mohegan Sun Casino, we see Zombie and his cohorts igniting the night, and bringing down the house.
